Hello!  I’m Katy Potaty (aka Katy Holmes (no, not the one who married Tom Cruise)) and I graduated in 2004 with a BA (Hons) Illustration from UCLAN.  I’ve worked on a variety of projects over the years, but since going full time in 2013 I’ve concentrated on working with museums, specifically the learning department, making bright, engaging resources.

Please browse my portfolio and get in touch if you would like to discuss commissioning me.  I’m based in Yorkshire, although, as you can see from my client list, I work with people all over the UK, as well as overseas.
